Alison Sweeney's Biggest Loser Blog: 'Emotions Change on a Dime'

It's week three at The Biggest Loser, and we started with the show's first-ever auction.

It was so much fun to be the auctioneer for the day, particularly when the White Team thought they'd spent $180 on a mystery box filled with sugar and flour, only for me to surprise them with the news that it could be traded for any piece of already-purchased equipment. Talk about a dramatic shift in mood within the teams!

Thankfully, I said goodbye to the contestants before they had to explain what equipment they could work out with to their trainers.

Here's hoping you were able to catch last night's episode of The Biggest Loser, because there were so many great moments in it.

When we shoot the challenges and the weigh-in, the contestants tell me their stories from the week, but I loved watching Jillian Michaels and Craig's conversation during the show because it explains why he had a better attitude when he got to the first challenge – one in which he believed in himself and wanted to represent his team. The weight he eventually lost at the end of the week – 11 lbs. – was a testament to his hard work and great attitude.

Hey, everyone! I've missed chatting with you every week. It's been a blast shooting season 15 of The Biggest Loser, and I'm so glad we can all get together here to discuss it after each episode airs.

What did you think of Tuesday's season premiere? It was a big change-up, having the trainers part of the casting process, right?! I can tell you, I'm glad that wasn't my decision to make. It must have been so hard to choose the best 15 out of all the heartbreaking stories they heard of people searching for a life transformation. And I know they had so much to consider in their decisions.

What Will Biggest Loser Winner Danni Allen Do with $250,000?

Biggest Loser Winner Danni Allen Is Taking Runner-Up Jeff Nichols on Vacation

Originally posted 03/20/2013 11:30AM

Danni Allen went from a size 20 to a size 4, won $250,000 and was crowned The Biggest Loser on Monday. But most important, she found herself.

"I am different in every which way possible," Allen told reporters Tuesday, the morning after her big win. "The physical transformation is right in front of you, but the mental change that I've gone through has been amazing. I've been able to change who I am going to be."

Allen, 26, became the last member of trainer Jillian Michael's team early in the season, but the adversity she faced on the Ranch allowed her to work through "demons" she says have plagued her throughout her life.

"It was the most heartbreaking thing to lose my team, but looking back, I think it was the best thing that could have happened to me," she said. "I just had to realize, 'You are enough, and you can be more.' "

Our journey together for season 14 of The Biggest Loser has come to an end. Hopefully, you enjoyed Monday's finale!

Each season, I'm always nervous when first meeting the contestants and then uber-nervous for the live finale. What you don't see is that I go on stage right before the live show to say hi to the audience. The best part of that is to see my supportive family in the audience and to see all the alumni that come back year after year as their Biggest Loser family grows with each season.

It's always so fun to see some of the veterans return. I loved seeing Amanda, Sunshine, Estella and Jerry, Dan and Jackie and so many others.
